Based on documentary materials including interviews with key players in China, this book charts the development of non-governmental and non-profit organizations in China from the late 1970s to the present day. It recounts how in the aftermath of the 1978 reforms that created a market economy and diversified interests and social life, new institutions and organizations outside of the state system increased dramatically in number, size and influence. These organizations, which barely existed before the reforms began in the late 1970s, carry out many social, economic and cultural tasks neglected by the government.

Qiusha Ma examines two key questions crucial to understanding the development of NGOs in China: First, is it possible under China’s one-party state for non-governmental organizations to thrive and play important economic, social and political functions? And secondly, are NGOs facilitating the formation of a civil society in China?

Review:

'This book contains a wealth of interesting new material and insights...Ma writes in a clear, easily readable style that helps engage a reader's interest. Her book is recommended to anyone who wishes to know more about the growth of Chinese associations or about the prospects for corporatism and civil society in China.

- China Journal

'Quisha Ma's book is a highly readable account of one of the main impacts of the reduction in range and power of the central state and is a useful study of what public opinion in China might be.' - Asian Affairs
